Took about 4 to 5 minutes to download (cable on wireless N) and its been about 8 minutes installing with about 85% done....

EDIT:

it goes through the progress bar screen three times - the second and third times are much faster than the first.

Downloading (slowly) in the UK - I wonder what it will give me*, given that movie rentals aren't an option here.

*I know - I'm downloading the update without knowing much about it at all. At least it is going on relatively cheap (reconditioned) hardware, so if I don't like it I can roll back and set my firewall to deny traffic to mesu.

Alright, who is going to be the first to verify Bitrate max, etc for those of you who have HD movies?

See if they increased it, but didn't tell everyone like they are doing on the iPhone.

Any chance that 5.1 works on Handbrake encoded DVDs?

downloading now but it's very slow to download - I downloaded the 380mb 10.5.2 in about 10 minutes yesterday but it's telling me there are 24 minutes to go for this one

Still using 10.4.7 - update dmg is 168mb if anyone is interested in poking around.

http://mesu.apple.com/data/OS/061-35...4-5274-109.dmg

There are two other updates apart from the dmg above. They appear to update the EFI and new firmware for the HDMI chips on board.
